Mike Pence Walks Out Of NFL Game After Several 49ers Players Kneel During National Anthem




Vice President Mike Pence left Sunday’s NFL game between Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers after several 49ers players kneeled during National Anthem, writing on Twitter: “I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem.”

Pence added: “At a time when so many Americans are inspiring our nation with their courage, resolve, and resilience…now, more than ever, we should rally around our Flag and everything that unites us. While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don’t think it’s too much to ask NFL players to respect the Flag and our National Anthem.”
